Ruby Tuesday, Inc. is a leading company in the bar-and-grill category of the U.S. casual dining restaurant industry. From its original location in Knoxville, Tennessee, the Ruby Tuesday chain has grown to more than 700 units in about 40 states primarily in the Southeast, Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, and Midwest. Nearly 500 of the outlets are company owned with the remainder being franchised. Entrees, ranging in price from $6.49 to $16.99, include ribs, chicken, steak, seafood, pasta, burgers, and sandwiches, and the menu also features soups, a salad bar, and desserts. The restaurants also offer food for carry-out via the company's "curb-side to-go" initiative. Ruby Tuesday's relatively small but expanding international operations include about three dozen franchised restaurants in about a dozen countries.




Chicken and Mushroom Alfredo

Seasoned chicken tossed with tender linguine pasta, sauteed baby portabella mushrooms, green peas, and rich Parmesan cream sauce.

Ruby Tuesday Copycat Recipe

Serves 4

6 ounces linguine
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into 1 inch chunks
12 ounce  fresh white mushrooms, cleaned and trimmed, sliced  (about 3-3/4 cups)
1 jar (about 17 ounces) Alfredo sauce
1 cup frozen green peas

Cook linguine according to package directions; drain. Meanwhile, in large nonstick skillet heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over high heat. Add chicken; cook and stir until golden on all sides, about 5 minutes; remove to plate. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in skillet. Add mushrooms; saute until lightly browned and liquid has evaporated, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low; return chicken to skillet; stir in Alfredo sauce and peas; cover and simmer until sauce is hot, about 3 minutes; stirring occasionally. Serve over pasta, sprinkled with parsley, if desired.

Notes:  To save time, you can substitute chicken tenders for the chicken breasts and not have to cut them into pieces.

  1. This is not even remotely helpful. Where is the best part??? The Cajun spiced Alfredo sauce! You basically gave a recipe on how to cut and sautee chicken and mushrooms, throw in some frozen peas and mix with a crappy jar of store bought alfredo sauce!
